David West said the Pacers young core "only has room to get better," and he is inclined to re-sign with the team as a free agent this summer.

Remember that the Pacers are still competing in the playoffs, so West's circumspect quotes must be taken with a big grain of salt. "I love it here, love this group of guys, this environment, love the core group that we have," said West. The 32-year-old PF is earning $10 million this season and may look for similar compensation in a new contract.
